ISLAMABAD: The government has released commemorative stamps on the occasion of the 550th birth anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.
Pakistan Post has decided to establish a post office at Kartarpur complex to facilitate Sikh pilgrims while another post office will be opened at Nankana Sahib.
The commemorative stamps will also be provided in 192 member countries of Universal Postal Union.
On Oct 29, the federal government had issued a commemorative coin to mark the 550th birth anniversary of Baba Guru Nanank.
Earlier, Pakistan’s capital Islamabad and New Delhi had signed an agreement to let Sikh pilgrims visit Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib via Kartarpur corridor. According to the agreement, the pilgrims will not require visa for the visit.
Prime Minister Imran Khan will inaugurate the corridor on November 9, three days before the event celebrating Guru Nanak’s birth.
The Sikhs visiting this month will be able to buy the Rs50 coin. Postage stamps with an image of the Gurdwara Janam Asthan will also be available for Rs8.
